Rules, they sometimes say, are made to be broken. The truth is they are made to be observed, and the team which is guilty of a violation should suffer the penalty. Our sympathy is with the of- ficials. Most of them whom we have had the opportunity to watch closely in the Western Con- ference, the Big Six conferences and in free lance competition have been very good. All of them are honest, beyond question. Oc- casionally one may suffer a lapse in his interpretation of the rules, or in missing an infraction that is obvious to almost everyone else. But such occurrences are the ex- ceptions. By and large, the collegiate of- ficials are doing a fine job. A new term has taken root in the language of football, We have been reading of informal teams, at Harvard, Boston College, and elsewhere. It seems that an In- formal team is composed of bona fide students who have been giv- en no inducements by anyone to play football, The schools that they represent are apparently ashamed of them because hereto- fore these schools have gone out and brought men in ust to play football. So these informal teams are just some of the boys who have gotten together to have fun. It used to be that way every- where. That was before the days of highly paid coaches, subsidized players, and ballyhoo. It would be nice if informal college foot- ball teams would become the rule rather than the exception. The professional clubs can pay the fellows that want to play for money. What youthful rivals are say- ing to each other on the football iield rarely becomes known to tim public. Some of it, possibly, is just as heated as the game. Much of it is humorous. We are indebted to our friend, Jim Kearns of the Chicago Sun, for this interesting aside in the recent Notre Dame-Army game "Army's tackle, Frank Merritt, was doing his best to upset the Notre Dame offense . . . sometimes he charged to the outside, some- times to the inside, sometimes straight ahead . . . his tactics var- ied constantly . . . Finally Zyg Czarobski, Notre Dame's right tackle, spoke to Merritt. 'Hey Frank, we're all supposed to look good you know. How about you standing still a minute, so I can get one block on you the way I'm supposed to?' . . . Army's Capt," Mylinski, playing center, sought a part in the conversation, but Czarobski switched tactics and addressed Mylinski in Polish to the considerable confusion of the: West Point leader who hadn't ex- pected to catch a linquist playing tackle." On a recent Doll among service men. the boys voted 96 per cent for the continuance of sports dur- ing the war. In view of this fact one is at a loss to understand why more soldieirs have not attended the games at the Little Rock Stad- ium this year. They were invited on several occasions, and tickets were provided for as many as five or ten thousand of them, but only a few hundred appeared for the games.

Maids chosen for Miss Cox were Miss Betty Ann Bauer, Paris, and Miss Alice Ann Etzkorn, Subiaco. The queen was to receive her crown in colorful ceremonies just preceding the kickoff. She was to reign not only Wednesday but also at post-season events honor- ing the Trojans, such as the an- nual banquet. Both Subiaco sarting guards, erkehr, were out of the lineup as the Trojans prepared to face a traditional Pointer enemy at close of the season. Wiederkehr was hurt in the Russellville game and rehurt at Greenwood, while Syl- vester got a bad knee as the Tro- jans were shaded, 27-26, by the Bulldogs at Fayetteville last Fri- day night. Bob Goebel, pint-sized center, and Louis Caillouet, light- est Subiaco back this season, also were out with inijuries, not severe but of the kind dictating inaction.

It is noted, too, that the Gov- ernments of Belgium. Norway, and Poland have requested that their people be given relief, and that "there are food supplies available in the United States and in South America." Long Friendship Cited The Resolution states that "Bel- gium, Czechoslovakia, Norway, Poland, Greece, Jugoslavia and The Netherlands and others have lived in friendship with the Unit- ed States during our entire nation- al existence, and have sent us mil- lions of our most useful and help- ful American citizens, and now have no means whatever of se- curing the necessary agreements by which this disaster can be averted." By the terms of the Resolution, the Senate would urge the State Department to "endeavor as quickly as possible to work out, in cooperation with the British Gov- ernment and the Governments of Sweden, Switzerland, and the ac- credited representatives of the other governments concerned, the setting up of systematic and defi- nite relief for all stricken and hungry countries where the need is now the most acute; this relief to be based on agreements by the belligerents for the protection of the native and imported food sup- plies, with rigid safeguarding of such relief so that no military ad- vantage whatever may accrue to the civil populations or armed forces of the invading nations."

The "Haves" consistently defeat- ed the "Have-nots," and when teams played in their own class, it usually was possible to figure out the winners in advance. Of course, you can cite a few ex- ceptions. Generally speaking, however, results ran truer to form than in any season in our memory.

Athletes at times are bothered with the common cold. This should not be. Men in good con- dition should not take cold easily. Colds arc often cansed by hasty showers and by rapid dressing and rushing out into the cold air. l'qay should be tapered off to- ward the end of the practice per- iod. There should be plenty of time for a leisurely shower, and a slow change to street clothes. This will mean that athletes will be in good shape for games and colds will be the exception.

The Trojans led most of the way but were overhauled by a long pass completed to End Baird of Fay- etteville near the close. A count- er pass of their own, shot 40 yards by George Savary to Subiaco's fleet end Lescalt grazed the lat- ter's hands as he ran full speed and attempted to take it in over his head. Completed, this pass would have been the sensation of the game, and it deserved to be completed, but the gods of chance had decided otherwise. The Tro- jans went down fighting this time needing only a minute of time to win. Baird's perfect drop kick- ing of four extra points, and the Trojans' own failure to stick to their best asset earlier, the long aerial, contributed to the Subiaco downfall at Fayetteville. Subiaco last year had shaded Fayetteville 12-6, in another thriller, though not as exciting a game as Friday's.
